In order to play, practise and be able to take lessons, it is important to have an instrument for yourself. Of course you don’t need to buy one right away. Best is to rent one, especially in the beginning. There are smaller cellos especially suitable for children. Apart from the size, these are not different from the bigger ones. Together we’ll measure the right size for you.
I have a couple of cellos for rent for my students. If I don’t have an instrument available for you, it is always possible to go to a violin maker. I can help you find one that rents out instruments. For rental, repair or buying an instrument, I often suggest Maas Vioolbouw.
If you are considering buying your own cello, and need some advice, I’d be happy to help.
